A little trivia
This is a repeat from several months ago, but in honor of the DVD release of Master and Commander, The Far Side of the World
, I'll add that in the old sailing days, they used larboard
instead of "port" for the left side of the ship. They use "larboard" in M&C, so unless you are a sailing expert (or you read these message boards
) you wouldn't know what they were talking about!
They think the origin is from either 13th century English or Norse words meaning "loading side".
And now we return to your regularly scheduled program...
